The one you *didn't* remove is the Word Normal Template, and that's probably
where the difficulty is.
Basically, the man has a PC VBA macro in "one of" his templates. Since the
problem occurs for "all" documents, it's either Normal, or one of the
templates in the Add-Ins box, which probably means the template itself is in
the Office/Startup/Word folder.
Hope this helps
